Both products can be found at WalMart easily. Gumout is cheaper at $4+ vs Chevron at $10 ish.

Which has more PEA?

Usually buy Techs in cause it's often on sale at Costco. In my experience Gumout works as well.

If I remember correctly, the one on sale as a pack of 6 at Costco is a lower concentration of PEA compared to Walmart sold 'Complete Fuel System Cleaner'.

That's changed, it's two large bottles of the real stuff now. Passed on the injection cleaner.

If you ask Chevron they'd say no. Both products are fine..no doubt Gumout mfgs good cleaners and I use both. But, if the two are equally priced I go with Techron simply because Chevron virtually invented aftermarket PEA use, so they have the advantage of having the most experience (R&D) working with amine fuel addys. I know, not terribly scientific but it works for me.

*Chevron's Techron is also mentioned in TSB's, from what I've seen. In the past they mfg'd Mopars top end cleaner and they currently mfg the Hyundai branded cleaner..fwiw
